I tried installing gcc-3.4.4 on freebsd 5.1 (and 4.8) and after configuration the make failed with
the following message:

byacc --name-prefix=__gettext --output plural.c ../../gcc/intl/plural.y
usage: yacc [-dlrtv] [-b file_prefix] [-o output_filename]
                  [- p symbol_prefix] filename

I think what's happening is gcc is calling byacc with bison arguments? I there a fix or work around?
